The Family Friend

A Feature film by Paolo Sorrentino

Release in France : 02/05/2007

    Synopsis

    Geremia di Geremei: seventy years old, usurer, monstrously ugly, dirty, rich and stingy, cynical and ironic. He has a morbid, obsessive relationship with money. Everything makes him sick: his mother, father, money, women – in short, life.
    This is the reason why he feels he’s alone. And yet he isn’t.
    Everyone’s like him.
    We are all like him.
